Today was a great day for Tara. She spent time this morning with some friends from our small group. Then lunch at home with Andrean, Jenna and Lewis as well as a good friend, who brought the lunch. This afternoon was some great time with the kids doing school work. In between a few chores around the house. By the end, as she would want it, she was all used up and now lays crashed in bed ready for rest. You don’t have to probe too deep to find the smile on her face, because she remembers clearly where she was 8, 6, or even 3, weeks ago. It is now day seventy.
Tomorrow is round 9 of chemotherapy. I’ll be going with Tara right away in the morning to get some much needed time with her. Hopefully the conversations are not distracted. I guess that is up to me, right?
We have been updating our wall map regularly, but we know we are still missing some locations where people are thinking of and praying for us. If you don’t see your place represented, please let me know so I can stick a pin there (I’m sorry if you have told me and I have forgotten). This map has been a source of great encouragement to us and will remain on our bedroom wall for years to come as a reminder of God’s faithfulness.
